Situated at the northern end of Upper Hutt, scenic, surrounded by bush-clad hills and bounded by the Akatarawa River.

We are a school 'on the up', with a roll of 182 catering for students in Y1–6.

As the new principal, you will carry on, support and extend the progress that has been made over the past 4 years to provide the best possible learning and teaching for our school.

We are seeking a passionate and energetic leader who is ready to work alongside a committed and friendly staff to further enhance achievements and opportunities for our students. This is a wonderful opportunity to join a supportive, caring school and community.

As leader you will be able to:

  • Engage, inspire and work collaboratively with our BOT and community
  • Embrace and promote our school's key principles (GEMS), its collaborative practice and agency
  • Develop and maintain effective relationships with our learners, staff, whānau and community.

‘Aroha ki te ako, Ako ki te aroha’, 'Love to learn, Learn to love’.

This vision is about every child reaching their potential. Our curriculum is broad, relevant for all learners and fun. Approximately 30% of our students identify as Māori – we are committed to Māori succeeding as Māori and te Tiriti o Waitangi.

This is an ideal role for an experienced leader ready to take the next steps in their career – or for a first-time principal commencing this career journey.
